Detroit, Michigan, USA

PeacePlayers Detroit is currently working in the neighborhoods of Cody Rouge and Southwest Detroit, bringing together basketball teams from each neighborhood to interact and get to know each other. Cody Rouge is predominantly African American and SW Detroit is a predominantly Latino community, and youth from these neighborhoods have limited exposure to others outside of their immediate communities.

By bringing these young people together on the basketball court and through fun and engaging peace-building programming, they are learning to welcome and embrace each other. PeacePlayers Detroit is also working to use the power of sport to develop these local Detroit youth leaders and build stronger communities by helping to rebuild trust between local Detroit police and their communities to show youth that if you can all play together, you can live together.
